The original shot was taken in May 2006 at a Viking festival held at Elvaston Castle in Derbyshire. Here I have converted the shot to black and white and used the part of the porcelain skin technique described in the Photo Manipulators forums. Then I added a rock texture and erased some of it to reveal the men. Another layer was given a harsh sepia tone which was then overlayed on to the background and adjusted with the opacity slider. All my own images.
